10 Out of Place Songs That Really Work Well in Movies

Fallen – “Time is on my side” by the Rolling Stones

I for one, always think of this movie whenever I hear this song. It’s definitely appropriate for the movie’s theme but certainly “out of place” enough to warrant a mention on this list. You just don’t associate this song with serial killers do you? I mean I guess “Time is on my side” makes sense in terms of the spirit having so much time now but still, it’s just weird to associate this song with horror.

Blue Velvet – In Dreams by Roy Orbison

Dennis Hopper is draining laughing gas and acting like a complete loon and that same movie contains a sweet Roy Orbison song? Check. David Lynch is certainly strange. Plus it’s Dean Stockwell singing!

The Big Lebowski – “Hotel California” by The Eagles, sung by The Gypsy Kings

This one was debatable only because all the other movies involve some kind of whacked out horror. However, it’s just as completely random and amazing that the Spanish version of Hotel California is played when John Turturro is licking a bowling ball. Well not completely. His character is Latin but come on. It’s in a bowling alley.

Full Metal Jacket – “Chapel of Love,” The Dixie Cups

Something’s amiss when you are filming a Vietnam scene in the mud and you hear “Going to the chapel and we’re….gonnnnna get maaarried” playing. Kubrick, as usual, stuns his audience in a great great way.

Reservoir Dogs – “Stuck in the Middle with You,” by Stealers Wheel

This one goes without saying and is clearly the best.

Obviously this list isn’t set in stone, if you have any suggestions please feel free to participate in the comments.
